Coast Guard Auxiliary volunteer service stepping up its operational roles

The men and women of the Coast Guard Auxiliary are stepping up their integration in day-to-day operations throughout Sector Charleston’s area of responsibility. From responding to search and rescue missions and educating the public to augmenting active duty members at units, the Auxiliary’s presence helps extend the Coast Guard’s reach throughout local communities. This initiative, known as “Think Auxiliary!”, is a response to a goal set by Capt. Gary Tomasulo, Coast Guard Sector Charleston’s commanding officer, to perfect and improve mission execution.
